'JpiiK loUowing lew pages are lormally dedicated to the liistory of the Class ol 

and anyone not in that distinguished group (correction, please— anyone wlio 
reads it) is liable to be sentenced to a jjeriod of not more than (ilteen, nor less than 
live minutes ol boredom. 

Ol' course, the above paragraph is written in jest. For in the following ])ages of 
black print, there are many words that help to recapitulate uidorgetful events that 
occurred during tlie lour, wonderful years that we, the graduating class of '49, 
spent together. 

It is not an easy task, as Mr. Kearns will testily, to express in an interesting way 
those events that will be forever dear to us. Our class history is written in an indirect 
way. The eventful parts of our four years at W.H.S. are written so as to coincide 
with a series of events that also took place in the year '49, one century earlier, 1849, 
when gold was discovered in the Sacramento Valley of California. To California 
many thousands of people went by wagon across the plains from the North, the 
East, and the South, always subject to the attacks of Indians and death by starva- 
tion or thirst. 

Their journey to the West is not much unlike our four-year journey through 
Weymouth High School. While they had hoped to attain at the end of their long 
and perilous trijj a "pot of gold", we dreamed of the great, now historical day, when 
we would receive our sheepskins. So remember as you read this class history, to try 
to synchronize the two expeditions. 


Notice was given by Mr. Mapes of a caravan forming for a trip to the gold country 
in September of 1945. All interested members were to report to rcxmis 101-206A of 
Weymouth High School for further information. 

A Maroon and Gold circular containing instructions and directions relating to 
the four-year journey to be tmdertaken was given to those reporting. The head 
coachman, Mr. Whittle, with his assistants, welcomed the pioneers, who were just 
starting on their perilous journey. Supplies were given to all, and the forty-niners 
who had assembled from the various sections were soon well acquainted. 

When the caravan began to move onward, various reactions were noted among 
the group. Most were extremely serious, being frightened by the size of the caravan 
and by the numerous rumors they had heard about all the impending dangers. 
Our first difficulty occurred when a group that had been sent out for food failed to 
return, so a scouting party had to be dispatched to locate them. They were finally 
safely returned to wagons No. 101 and No. 114. (Remember those split lunches?) 
However, after miles of walking, pushing, and ricling in those hard uncomfortable 
wagons, all became adapted to the routine of the trip. 

The first two years of the undertaking were rather uneventful. Each year fol- 
lowed more or less the same routine. To break the monotony, however, sports events 
were planned with a series of football games being played when other caravans 
were met along the route. Thanksgiving Day was celebrated by our team, coached 
by Paul Sweeney, playing a team from Cronin's Creek. To pep up the group and 
to cheer the team on to victory, a Booster's Club was formed under the leadership 
of Miss Toomey and Mr. Ghiorse. Once a week this group provided pre-game 
entertainment by a series of skits which were usually presented at some loclge along 
the route. The season closed by paying honor to the athletes by a banquet, at which 
awards were given to the most outstanding ones, followed a few days later by a 
"Victory Dance" which all who attended greatly enjoyed. 

During the winter season, a new group, the Chess Club, was organized by Mr. 
Matthews to provide entertainment for chess players and any interested spectators. 
The leaders were Bob McCarthy, Robert Marr, Allan Patterson, and Ronnie 

Page Seventeen 

Travelling along, we found a number of musically talented people with us. At 
various times, they provided entertainment while we sat around the campfires. 
In appreciation of such, money was obtained to purchase colorful maroon and gold 
uniforms for these entertainers. 

On oiu- join ney, we found sorrow occasionally interrujjling our happiness. Such 
was the case when death took Mr. Calderwood, who, lor a great number of years, had 
aided musical groups in our home sections. A short time l)efore, everyone had been 
greatly shocked by the loss of one of our aiUomobile mechanics leaders, Mr. Bryan. 

The first stage of oin- trip was broken by a ten-week rest stop, during which time 
fresh supplies were taken on and general repairs were made. Some desired to leave 
the caravan at this time. Among them were Miss Chase, Miss Jones, Miss Pray, 
Mrs. Oppler. and Mr. Matthews. There were a ninnber of people who had listened 
to oiu' stories of adventiue and, as a restdt, wanted to continue along with us. Lack- 
ing facilities, we could take only a few, including Mr. Erwin, Miss MacDougall, Miss 
Salo, and Miss Ghiorse. Mr. Cleaves, who had been detained in protecting a section 
of our roiue against an Indian raid, rejoined us early in the year, followed a little 
later by Mr. Arlanson. 


The beginning of our third year found us just packing up to leave the Weymoiuh 
Hotel in Kansas City, Kansas. Some of us had been fortimate in being assigned to 
rooms freshly painted in rather unusual colors, rose, blue, (^r green. During our stay 
there, more changes took place with Mr. Loud, Miss Silverman, Miss Pearson, and 
Mr. Sherwood leaving us, biu in return. Miss Hill, Miss Gill, Mr. Stuart, Miss Fla- 
herty, Mr. Pieper, Mr. Roy, Mr. Rudolph, and Mr. Dwyer joined us. 

En route, the group, weary of the constant toil of travel, decided to take time out 
for recreation. The caravan divided into a number of different teams called Brock- 
ton, Weymouth, Quincy, North Quincy, Abington, Hingham, etc. to play a series 
of football games. Oiu^ spectacular Weymouth team under Co-captains Covency 
and Bicknell won by a score of 7 to 0, over the Brockton team. At other times dining 
the trip, brief encounters were held among the caravan groups and, at the end of the 
series of games, two tro])hies were awarded; one to John DiGravio, the other to 
Jimmy Coveney. To build up enthuiasm, three of our members, Barbara Weidman, 
Janet Melville, and Ann Russo, were selected to head a cheering section. 

In one town where we stopped, the people were experimenting with a newspaper 
called the Spectatoi , which was later discontinued because most of the townspeople 
moved westward with the gold rush. 

The carpentry and rej^air crew stopped oft for a short time at the foothills of the 
Rockies to build a house for one of the caravan leaders, Mr. Driscoll, who had 
found the basis lor his dreams in one of the small mining towns we passed. 

During the Christmas season of our third year, the entire caravan was again deep- 
ly saddened by the accidental death of one of the outstanding members of wagon 
No. 223, Ethel Voigt. 

So again our wagon wheels rolled westward. On our way we elected officers. 
The outcome was: John Siieehan, jjresident; John Mclniosh, vice-president; 
Helen McGlynn, secretary: and John Chase, treasurer. The maintenance and repair 
crew chose Frank Colijy, president; Lawrence Raby, vice-president; and Edward 
White, secretary-treasurer. 

It was a stormy, rainy night on May 4, 1948 as we took lodging in Denver, Colo- 
rado. To relieve the strain of our hardships, a party was held. Fhe building was 
gaily decorated with marine decorations and sea growths. George McCue's orches- 
tra su])i)lied the nuisic . Joan Fieeman and Eddie DeLuc a were crowned king and

Barbara Nelson enlertained willi piano selec lions. One ol the inosi enjoyaljle num- 
bers was the taj) daiuins^ duel t;i\en by Bai i)ara Weidnian and Lorraine Raymond. 

Living condil ions were \aslly dilleicni in the Iroiilier lowns ihrougli which we 
passed. One da\ we gathered al ihe general store and listened lo stories ol the 
adventuresome people who had seltlecl in the region. I'hey told us all kinds ol 
interesting stories al)oiU I heir lives, the possibilities ol making a living, the advan- 
tages and disad\ antagcs ol such a way ol living. 

It was not uniil we were moving along toward Salt Lake (iity that we lound theie 
were some outstanding in scholastic ability with us. Among these was a business 
student, Alice Akie, who had pas,sed the 12()-word Gregg Shorthand Certificate 
test given by Miss Noris. This was the first time in school history that anyone had 
ever past that test in the junior year. In f)ur caravan was a boy, Robert Marr, who 
had been presented a book trom a Harvard society lor his outstanding ability. 

To celebrate our rapid progress during the past year, a part of the group went on 
a scouting party to explore the surrounding territory, finally arriving at a place 
called Cirescent Park. After a long, dusty ride, the water looked most refreshing; so 
immediately a couple of the more rugged pioneers plunged in only to hear to their 
regret that the water was polluted. Then a long, dusty trip back to camp. 


1 he months Hew l)y anil fall was soon again with us. Since our wagons 
had to be repaired at this time, a small caravan including Mrs. Masters, Mrs. Ley- 
don, Mr. Annis. Mr. Carlson, Mr. Henley, Miss Pearson, Mr. Dicker, Mr. Whit- 
more, and Mr. Kearns caught ujj with us. While sitting around our campfire, we 
were entertained by stories of England as told by Mr. Dicker and Miss Pearson. 
Mr. Mitchell found a profitable place to settle; so he left the group before reaching 
the destination. Construction men were in great demand throughout this region of 
great opportunities so Mr. Rudolph and Mr. Pieper also decided lO leave us. 

Upon returning to our caravan, we were pleasantly surprised to find many new 
facilities, wliich made the remainder of our journey more comfortable, and to 
notice the attractive interior decorations. 

Early in November, we decided it was time for us to do some thinking about our 
future. We knew it would be wise for us to listen to the advice of those more experi- 
enced. So in the small mining town of Gutterson's Gulch, we gathered round our 
caravan while a group of experienced men from the town talked to us about the pos- 
sibilities which would present themselves after we had reached our ilestination. 

Mr. Kelly, one of our drixers, remained behind when the caravan moved on to 
help defend the settlers against the Indians. 

On November 17, another stop was made at Reffector Lake to replenish our sup 
ply of water. At this time, a feast was held for those members of our own and other 
caravans in this section who had managed the literary efforts. 

At various times, the work of the long, weary journey was somewhat lessened by 
pleasant athletic activities, provided by small units of the caravan. In honor of 
those participating in these events, a get-together was held at Victory Valley, during 
which awards were given to the most outstantling in these activities, Neil Russo and 
Bobby Hacketl. I he following night everyone enjoyed listening and dancing to the 
music of Art Jackson's orchestra, and, in the morning, we continued on our jour- 
ney. Because of the outstanding way in which we had performed these sports, we 
were informed while on our wav that we were now rated as CHass A. 

Page Nineteen 

After continuing along our way, we stopped on December 21 to celebrate the 
Christmas season. In the evening, we gathered roimd the campfire and exchanged 
gilts with Mr. Brown, one of our drivers, as old St. Nick. Refreshments were en 
joyed, and entertainment was provided by members of our caravan. We rested for 
a few days, thoroughly enjoying the holiday and then continued on our hazardous 

On Jatiuary 14, a stop was retjuired for a few days because of bad weather. To 
break the monotony of ihe delay, a concert was jjresented by the musically talented 
members of the caravan. Given imder the able leadershi]} of Mr. Russell Jack, wiih 
specialties by a brass quartet and a string trio, it was enjoyed by all who attended. 

All felt recognition should be given to the young lady in the caravan outstanding 
in dependability, service, leadership, and ])atriotism. This honor was given Janet 
Heaver. A selection was also made to detcmiine a person cjualified at studying the 
plans for a good form of government in our fiuure settlement. Neil Russo was our 
choice for this. 

The caravan stopped two nights at I^ramatown, where a play entitled " I he 
Fighting Li: ties" was being presented. Most of our group attended one of the pei- 
formances, in wliich Joan Freeman, Barbara Nelson, and Allan Patterson starred. 

On April 29, the caravan foimd reason for an all-out celebration since we had 
crossed the crest of the Sierras, and the gold country was at last in sight. How 
should we celebrate? Finally we decided upon a gala affair at which we all enjoyed 
ourselves listening and dancing to the soft strains of the latest hit tunes. 

On June 22, tired and weary, we readied our destination, Sheepskin Valley. 
Under thle able leadership of our officers, our journey had been a success. California 
loomed before us and our futures began to take sliape. The gleaming gold was at 
last oins. We each received oiu^ share of the gold, for which we had worked so hard 
these past four years. With joyous hearts and fond memories, we planned the man- 
ner in whicii we woidd celebrate. We decided upon a grand feast followed by a 
dance at which we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. l*robably the last place we saw 
members of our caravan was at our outing together on June 24. Although we were 
glad to liave reached our destination safely and successfully, there was now a twinge 
of sadness within our hearts.

"iCay, Mort, do you remember all our pals who were with us on that wagon trip 
we made irom Weymouth in '49?" 

"I sure do. It took us four years, but we fmally made it— and we had tun all 
the way." 

"1 iv'onder, Mort, what they're all doing now." 

"Sa y, I've got an idea. Let's find out just where they all are and put the news 
in a letter to be sent to all of them." 

"What an idea, Mort! Everyone'll sure be pleased when they find out just 
what all the old gang are doing now."

By Barbara Anne Chellis 

As the strains of "America the Beautiful" reach our ears, we are again reminded 
of the principle of our democratic way of life, "God shed His grace on thee, 
and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shinning sea". Our forefathers, 
the Pilgi ims, were the first to realize that they owed more to their God than to their 
country. The church was considered the most important part of their community. 
Belief in God and God's will were their sustenance. God was their Leader; and thus 
they gave to us a glorious heritage, freedom under His guiding hand. 

Therefore, we have come to form our pattern of righteous living from God's 
word as expressed in the Bible, primarily in the Ten Commandments, and from the 
example of Christ. Each of our Presidents lays his hand upon the Bible while 
taking an oath to uphold the principles of our democracy. The Ten Command- 
ments, such as "Thou shalt not steal" and "Thou shall not kill", form the basis of 
our American laws. From the study of the life of Christ wc have learned that we are 
remembered for our deeds. For, although Christ li\ed for only thirty-three years, 
the quality of His life was such that He changed the course of history. Accordingly, 
from these three sources, Americans have formed the belief that an ideal democracy 
is rooted in obedience to God's laws. 

During the course of not too many years, however, the American attitude to- 
ward these fundamental concepts has greatly changed. Owing, perhaps, to an ab- 
sorption of time in business, sports, and varied amusements, our people today are 
devoting considerably less time to Him who created them and to His foundation, 
the Church. First of all, the principles of materalism and secularism are filling the 
hearts of those who feel they do not need God. There is a growing belief that educa- 
tion and science can solve all our problems, can create better societies, and can con- 
trol the degrees of peace and happiness. The great principles of morality and 
Christianity, which should be instilled in the heart of every American, are being 
neglected by allowing science and the ideals of modernism to be given the foremost 

Through our own fault, it appears that faith in God is being supplanted by 
individual selfishness and greed for power. People are becoming more and more 
unwilling to sacrifice. Each one is interested mainly in gaining happiness and com- 
fort for himself, rather than in leaving to posterity an America enwrapped in har- 
mony and security. But wc must first preserve the glory of God if we wish to pre- 
serve our nation as it has been given to us in righteousness and truth. We must 
also take a stand against the materialistic beliefs which threaten our American way 
of life. 

Page Sixty-eight 

Our ancestors well undcrslood the need ol a unified liiitli in G(k1. Every 
great American leader has lori elully and puhlidy expressed his convif tions ol this 
need. In our war lor independeni e, l*alri( k Hem y staled, " riu ie is a just dod who 
presides over the destinies ol nations". During the great C^ivil War Abraham Lin- 
coln declared, with assurance, "—this nation, under God, shall have a new birth 
ol Ireedom". At the death ol the same martyred Lincoln, Gi^rfield proclaimed, "(iod 
reigns and the government at Washington still lives". We Americans today are 
living on the ground that our lorelalhers died to make Iree. Why then do we not 
love and remember the God who, by the admission ol our lorelalhers, gave them 
sirength to fight lor Ireedom? 

Are Americans becoming an unapprec iative people? 11 we consult statistics, we 
lind that almost one-hall Ol the people today admit that they do not attend church. 
Thcjse same people cannot, therefore, be whole-hearied Americans, since the ac- 
cepted birthright of our nation, the life blood of our democracy, the only imifying 
force wliich can defeat materialism and secidarism, is faith in God, as revealed in 
Christianity and in Judaism, from which Christainity has sprung. We are at the 
darkest of all hours in our history when our very democracy is being threatened by 
the forces of a godless communistic ])hilosophy, which, if whole-heartedly lived, 
will be more powerfid than our Ghristian philosophy only half-lived. 

If we wish to lose our great land of o])portunity and prosperity, we need make 
no effort to sufxlue these foices of the materialistic believers. If we want to preserve 
our heritage, we must first maintain as our watchword "In God we trust". In that 
way we, the graduating class of 19 19 and all other Americans, will be constantly re- 
minded that we are all the children of a generous Father from whom blessings will 
continuously How if we ask lor them. May eaclt one of tis today and every clay kneel 
humbly before our God, thanking Him to help us maintain our democracy, which 
is so important for tlie peace of tfiis entire world.

By Robert Bruce Marr 

"The greatest and noblest pleasure ivhirh 
we can Jiax'e in this world is to discoxier nen' 
truths, and tlie next is to shake of] old 
prejudices." Frederick The Great 

E live in a world which science has benefited mankind in an unbelievable 
number of ways, and has contributed to its progress on a scale that is beyonrl 
our powers to comprehend. Man may, in several hours, make journeys that would 
have required several months' time a few short centuries ago. His voice is carried 
across continents and oceans at the speed of light, to be heard and understood by 
other human beings. With the tools which science has given him, man may pass 
over impenetrable barriers to explore formerly inaccessible parts of the earth. 
Science teaches him new and better ways of making the best use of the world's 
natural resources. His living is improved by the use of scientific wonders that would 
cause Aladdin to throw away his magic lamp in disgust. 

Yet we must remember that this same force that brings about such improved 
social and economic conditions and which gathers the far reaches of the globe into 
a closer contact with one another is a threat as well as a blessing to mankind. For 
with his rockets and supersonic aircraft, his atomic bombs and bacteriological war- 
fare, man possesss the seeds of self-destruction. If the practical applications alone 
were the guiding principle of science, then the human race would be doomed at the 
hands of men who use the fruits of science to satisfy their own individual greed and 
thirst for power. 

But the true scientist looks upon the practical applications as only the by-pro- 
ducts of his true goal, which is to seek and find the real nature of the iniiverse in 
which he lives. When Galileo formulated his fundamental laws of motion, he was 
trying to understand the workings of nature, and had no thought of machines 
which might be guided by his principles. Maxwell, in his endeavors to discover 
the nature of light, little knew that his findings would lead in time to the phenom- 
enon which we call radio. Naturally, the scientist regards the practical applications 
as valuable to himself and to his fellow man, but he is moved by a higher force than 
the wish to make life easier. 

The spirit of science, then, is primarily a profound curiosity on the part of 
the scientist. He is constantly exploring the unknown, searching for new truths 
only because they are truths, seeking new laws that will bring some mystery out 
into the light, spurred on only by the desire to comprehend the universe. This doc- 
trine of constant searching after knowledge, if adopted by all men, could be of 
considerable value in a world in which progress is still retarded by ignorance, and 
by fears, superstitions, and irrational ideas that lead to devasting wars. 

Science, however, is also the spirit of courage, tolerance, and humaneness, and 
in these three great virtues, science suggests ways in which mankind in general 
slundd conduct itself in order to secure greater harmony among its c|uarrelling 
lad ions. 

Page Seventy 

The scic'iitisl lias (lie (ouragc to (asl aside ( eiitiiry-old notions in place of 
newer and Ixtiei ideas, (ionlrary to the |)o|)uiar trend, tiie scientist does not flee 
from an idea lu'caiise it is new. If sc ieiue had rejec ted the theories of sudi men as 
Newton, Darwin, and Maxwell, merely l)ecaiise they broke down some of their 
cherished beliefs, how could we jxxssibly have made the progess which we look, back 
on today? Similarly, if we try to reject Einstein's relativity and other revolutionai y 
ideas, because they are contrary to our prejudices, how can we hope to look forwanl 
to greater advances in human comfort and in oiu' knowledge of nature? We, like 
the scientist, must learn to rejoice in each new discovery, even though it means a 
revision of some of our pet ideas. 

Science also teaches mankind how to i)e tolerant of the points of view of others. 
1 hrough the ages, science lias been a co-operative venture undertaken by men and 
Avcjmen respresenting every race, creed, and nationality. Archimedes was a Greek, 
Copernicus, a Pole; Galileo, an Italian; Newton, an Englishman; the Curies were 
French and Polish. U he scientist, realizing how little mankind really knows and 
how much remains to be learned, cannot afford to be .scornful of another man's dis- 
coveries and theories. He must be ready and willing to change his own point of view 
in the light of e\ idence, and the source of the new evidence should make little differ- 
ence in final oiucome. 

Lastly, science is liumane. ft has l)een our custom to poke fun at the scientist as 
an absent-minded, bewhiskered old man who shuts himself in his laboratory, com- 
pletely imaware of the cares af the world. There are, douljtless, such individuals to 
be found, but such a picture is certainly an unfair one, and is not representative of 
the true spirit of science. The scientist, notwithstanding the abstract natine of his 
work, is a man, and as such is deeply cocerned with the fate of his kind. This has 
become especially scj in recent years, when he has seen his theories and discoveries 
put to destructive uses by man in his futile struggle to gain more power than the 
other fellow. 

Albert Eiristein, whose work coidd hardly be much further removed from the 
common interest of life, had this to say when he addresed the students of the Cali- 
fornia IntitiUe of Technology in 1931. "Why does this magnificent applied science, 
which saves work and makes life easier, bring us so little happiness? The simple 
answer is: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it." 

"It is not enougli that you should understand about applied science, in order 
that your work may increase man's blessings," Einstein went on. "Concern for the 
man himself and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical en- 
deavors. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and etjuations. ' 

Thus we see the scientist as a man whose chief interest is the accumulations and 
simplification of further knowledge of nature. To achieve this aim, he must face his 
task with courage and with tolerance. We also see that the scientist recognizes the 
greatness of man as well as the greatness of the universe, for we find him able to set 
aside his test tubes and atom-smashers and join with his fellow men in their com- 
mon interest. 

Though the scientist is conscious of the great jjower he has acc[uired through 
his solving of .some of the mysteries of nature, he is also aware that the more lie 
learns the more he discovers that remains to be learned; the realization of this fact 
makes him himible. As Bertrand Russell put it, "We know very little, and yet it is 
astonishing that we know so much, and still more astonishing that so little know- 
ledge can give us so much power." 

The scientist carries an optimistic outlook of the future. He sees man in time - 
shaking oft his petty differences and developing a keener uncferstanding of his world 
and liimself. He realizes that science alone cannot bring aboiu these conditions, but 
he confidently awaits the day when human nature, through education and religion, 
shall reach its maturity ancl man shall be in a position to receive all the benefits 
which science offers him. That day may never come, but it is the ultimate goal to- 
ward which all men, whether scientists or not, are striving. 

Lets us look ahead with science over the road of progress to the pinnacle of per- 
fection, wliich, with God's lielp, we may some day be privileged to ascend.

By Barbara Eleanor Nelson 

ROM the moment we began otir career as students, we have been travelling on a 
long, upward road, the foundation ol which was laid in Massachusetts liv Hor- 
ace Mann over a hundred years ago. That road, which wc now realize to be ol vital 
importance in fiu thering true democratic liv ing, is Educaiion. 

The value ol such a road has ccrtamly been great, lor in what other way could 
the many people who have settled on our shores learn our language, understand 
our laws, acquire a basic knowledge of our government, vote intelligently, or ex- 
emplify American ideals? Dr. Payson Smith once said, "Society must insure itself 
through the education of all the people." 

In the field of education the progress of the first pioneers was seriously im- 
paired by the lack of transportation, necessary ccjuipment, and teachers adeciuately 
trained for the profession. 

As time went on, however, educational crusaders banded together to improve 
existing conditions and to hasten the develo]mient of this vital road. Several states 
began to establish normal schools to train teachers; others introduced free public 
elementary schools and made attendance obligatory. Gradually these crusaders 
won the support of the general public who finally realized how important this road 
of education was in builditig a better democracy. 

Once the foundation was firmly laid, the road rapidly expanded until it was 
divided into three main lanes: the intellectual, the physical, and the spiritual. It 
is these lanes, in which we have been travelling during the past twelve years, 
that have been influential in developing our personalities. 

While advancing in the first lane, that of intellect, we have learned the limda- 
mental principles of government, acquired a belter understanding of human 
nature, developed a clearer outlook on life through science, and have to reason 
logically and to express ideas clearly. 

In order to make the most of ihe lessons taught us on tliis road, we have foiuid 
it necessary to develoj) oinselves physically, lor withoiu energy and strength it is 
impossible lo survive or lo break tlown ihe barriers which retard progress. 

It was in the third lane, however, that we began to realize that without hope 
and faith in (iod, we could not expect to find courage to overcome obstacles or the 
strength lo journey onward. 

Page Seventy-two 

Moreover, these three lanes, combined into one main highway, have developed 
us soc ially, ior as we have travelled on, we have met people ol every denoiiiiiiai ion, 
in every walk ol lile, all seardiing lor the same goal— a l)etier denKKracy. By work- 
ing and |)lainiing together, we have learned to aaept peoj)le the way we find them 
and now realize that to have a road wide enough lor all, we must c:omj)romise, co- 
operate, develop self-control, and resj)ect others. Having ac(|uired a proper atti- 
tude toward life, we have tried to help those less fortunate than we. 

Perhaps one of the greatest lessons we have learned is to think of others rather 
than of ourselves alone; for, as John Ruskin wrote, "Youth, freed from desire for 
personal power and self-advancement has gone a step farther in the quest for 
Democracy." He also said that we advance on the road of life not by making our- 
selves cons])icuous, but by becoming great in heart and mind. 

As we set forth on this road anew today, with more responsibilities, duties, 
aims, and ambitions than ever before, let us ask God for strength to better our de- 
mocracy, for courage to live up to our motto, "Onward, Porty-Niners," and for the 
power to heed these lines of Emerson: 

"So nigh is grandeur lo our dust, 
So near is God to man. 
When Duty ivhispers low, THOU MUST, 
The youth replies, I CAN!"

iTH thi.s issue the 1948-1949 Reflector Staff ends a year lull ot interesting and 
enjoyable work. Many changes and additions have been attempted, and 
seem to have met with success. 

The staff was host at the first meeting of the Southeastern Massachusetts League 
of School Publications, and attended the Plymouth Meeting on March 31 and 
the Dedham meeting on May 19. 

We should like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the 
teachers, the pupils for their support, our faculty advisers, Mr. Brown, Miss White, 
Miss Silvester, and Mr. Steele, and to our printing instructor, Mr. Duncan, for their 
co-operation and assistance. 

May those who succeed us have as pleasant a year as did we, the Staff of 1948-

Student Council 

Jn addition to performing the regular duties of organizing the lunch room and fire 
drills, the Student Council sponsored the annual Victory Dance on December 
10, 1948, with Art Jackson's orchestra supplying the music. 

Delegates and representatives attended the Fall Convention of the South- 
eastern Branch of Associated Bodies of Student Councils at North Attleboro High 
School on November 17, 1948, where Dr. Judson Butler, Dean of Boston Univer- 
sity, gave an address on "Training for Leadership." 

The cheering section of the Thanksgiving Day Rally was composed of Stu- 
dent Council members who also sponsored other assemblies during the year. 

To complete its activities for this year, the Student Council worked with the 
town committe to promote the successful Tuberculosis X-Ray Drive which began 
in Weymouth on March 21, 1949. 

May the future members of the Student Coimcil have a successful year and 
enjoy their work as much as we have.

(/^N February 10 and 11, the Class of '49, under the competent direction of Miss 
Edna Flaherty of the faculty, presented "The Fighting Littles," a comedy by 
Caroline Fraucke, adapted from the novel of the same title by Booth Tarkington. 

The story meant just what tlie title said. It was one of the episodes, as Filmer 
would say, in the life of the fighting Littles. Goody loved Ham and he loved her, 
but Mr. Little didn't exactly like Ham. Filmer loved Antoinette and the feeling 
was mutual. Mrs. Little and Olita tried desperately to keep peace in the house, 
while Almatina tried to keep it together. Mr. Little thought that Norman Peel was 
just the man for Goody, but Henriette thought he was the man for her. Mrs. Har- 
peddle, Norman's aunt, and her son, Dicky, came to tea along with Miss Pologa, 
one of Miss Harpeddle's dancers who commimes. Cucko and Screwball, two of 
Goody's friends, came, too, and pademonium broke loose; Ham emerged the hero 
and won the girl. Filmer won Antoinette, Henriette, Norman, while Mrs. Little 
gained peace and qtiiet— for a while.

npHE cheerleaders this year have lived up to their reputation as the prettiest and 
best on the South Shore. They went to all the football games and most of the 
basketball games. Some of the girls went to the State Meet at Boston Garden to spur 
on the track team. 

Priscilla Hall moved to New Hampshire and her loss was really felt, but the 
substitutes filled her shoes admirably. 

This year's substitutes, who filled in very well when one of the regulars was 
absent, were Barbara Graham, Nancy Norwood, Doris Donaldson, Marjorie Dan- 
iels, and Joanne McKinnon. 

Captain Mary Loud, Barbara Weidman, Ann Russo, and Janet Melville are 
graduating and they leave the nucleus of their wonderful squad to next year's 
captain. Good Luck!

Tn spite of the numerous injuries which plagued the team, Weymouth had a good 
season. With the excellent material he developed this year, Coach Harry 
Arlanson has the nucleus of next year's squad and should be able to mould it into 
a first-class ball team. Weymotith's promotion to a Class-A bracket means a stiffer 
schedule next year; nevertheless the team should do well.

eymouth's basketball season of 1948-1949 could not be classed as highly success- 
ful, but it did provide many thrilling moments to the fans. 

One of the most exciting games was the first Hingham game which Weymouth 
won by a score of 43 to 27. The starting team for the most part of the season was 
Captain Jack Delahunt and Bill Sprague as forwards, Norm Wright as center, and 
Jack Sheehan and Jim Kane at the guard positions.

French Club 

^^NCE again the French Club has enjoyed another successful year under the com- 
petent cUrection of Miss Canning. After the business meeting, which was con- 
ducted entirely in French, a social hour was held, planned by the entertainment 
committee appointed for the meeting. 

Again this year the French Club, with the aid of the Spanish Club, presented 
the Language Appreciation Program in the atiditoritnn. Four plays were present- 
ed about each of the four languages offered at the high school, English, Spanish, 
Latin, and French. 

The club wishes to thank Miss Canning for her wonderful leadership. A cor- 
dial welcome is extended to all taking a second or third year of French next year.

'he Spanish Club was started this year under the direction of Miss Palmer. The 

officers were Betsy Brown, president; Elinor Wardwell, vice-president; Betty 
Doyle, secretary; and Natalie Gumming, treasurer. The business meetings were 
conducted for the most part in Spanish; after the meetings, many interesting pro- 
grams were presented as entertainment. Some of the activities included listening 
to records, learning songs, reading from a Spanish newspaper, and corresponding 
with students in Spanish-speaking countries. The members of the club enjoyed a 
Christmas party and attended the Open House sponsored by the French Club. 
They presented a Spanish play, "La Prueba", at the Language Appreciation Rally. 
The membership of this year was approximately twenty-five, and it is hoped that 
the club will continue to grow and become one of the foremost organizations in 
Weymouth High School.

Ski Club 

NOTHER season of the Weymouth High Ski Chib came to a close last spring. The 
membership has increased to approximately fifty pupils. The piu'pose of our 
club is to instruct students in the art of skiing, also to stimidate their intrest in this 

The club, supervised by Mr. Cleaves and Miss Hill, elected James Hasset, 
president; Gus Peterson, vice-president; Mildred Nyberg, secretary; and Jane Mac- 
Goldrick, treasiuer. Ronald Hcitman was our technical adviser. 

We were unable to do much skiing this year because of the deficiency of snow. 
However, the group enjoyed a wonderful all-day trip to Brattleboro, Vermont. 

The present members wish to thank Miss Hill and Mr. Cleaves for all the help 
and support they have given us. We should also like to invite all those interested lo 
join our club in the coming year.

Audio- Visual Club 

HThe Audiovisual Club, under the direction of Mr. Cleaves, was organized in 
September, due to the early sclicduling of films. Everyone received a four- 
week instruction period to learn the conmion machines and an additional four 
weeks for other equipment. At the completion of the course everyone was issued a 
projectionist license to show his capability of operating. 

The name of the club was changed this year from the "Projection Club" to the 
"Audio- Visual Club" because the club has many other duties than just operating 
projectors. The club's duties are to show motion picltires, make recordings, and do 
other visual aids work. 

We should like to extend our gratitude to Mr. Cleaves for his work and wish 
him successs and happiness with the club in the years to come.
